Needing Castle Suggestion to Host Dinner for Group

I am planning on bringing a group of 36 adults for a tour of Scotland in late August and I am looking for suggestions to organize a special dinner for them at a castle.  Is anyone aware of any castles that can offer a reasonably-priced dinner one evening for about £40.00 per person or is this even possible?  Our coach tour will be for 11 days and will almost a make complete circle of Scotland while we are there.   Thank you!

    It's possible, weekdays are probably best as many castles get used for weddings at weekends. Dornoch Castle Hotel comes to mind as having enough room I think, but I doubt you'll get all your guests in there at this short notice!
    Bespoke tours.
    Whisky, Castles and Food a speciality.

    @Peter921, I think that you should try Blair Castle just outside Pitlochry. They do lots of weddings but are relatively quiet through the week as far as functions are concerned. 
    Best regards

    Hi @Peter921
    I would suggest VisitScotland's page on staying in a castle. They should be able to offer dinner too. Around Edinburgh, you can try Melville Castle, Dundas Castle or Dalhousie Castle. I agree with the other comments that you have a better chance during the week. Have a great time!!

    Glamis Castle near Forfar might be able to accommodate you.  It is a stunning location but could be busy in August.
